Juliet (Vendor), 74 Palace Street, Petersham
Luke Smith and the team at Raine & Horne Commercial sold my mixed-use building in the Inner West at a good margin over reserve, despite the slight softening in the market. I have sold a number of houses over the years and my experience with this sale was the least stressful of them all. Luke was a calming presence throughout, and his skill and experience showed in the strong and cohesive marketing campaign and the way in which I was kept well informed about the number of queries and the feedback from potential purchasers. I am so pleased that I made the decision to sell with Luke and I unreservedly recommend him as an agent who is both experienced and ethical.

Paul & Sara (Purchasers), 2 Young Street, Redfern
We purchased a commercial premise that Luke was marketing. During the course of our inspections, he was helpful, courteous and informative, played a straight bat and acted professionally as a vendor’s agent. Thanks Luke.

Matthew (Purchaser), 31-33 Chalder Street, Marrickville
Hi Luke, thank you for always being prompt and helpful in relation to my questions and interest in Chalder Street. It is clear to see why you are a great agent with a highly regarded reputation. Congratulations to your vendor, as well as yourself and the agency on a great outcome also.

Marilyn (Vendor), 39 Smith Street, Summer Hill
Dear Luke, now that the sale of my property has settled, I would like to take the opportunity of thanking you for your service. On our first meeting you put me at ease and gained my confidence. I had previously listed the property with two other large commercial agents but did not realise a sale, unfortunately. I appreciated your honesty in your appraisal of the property and expectation of a realistic price. Others as it turns out had overstated the value and so I was disappointed and disillusioned when you came to me. I appreciated your honesty and understanding that it was a very emotional sale for me. I was confident that you would find a buyer, which you did, and I was very happy with the price achieved. I highly recommend you and your highly professional team. You achieved what others promised but were unable to deliver.

Cathy (Vendor), C114/52 Lyons Road, Drummoyne
Luke, Sammy and the team could not have been more helpful. Highly skilled at what they do, they deliver as promised with excellent results and superior customer service. I would highly recommend then and definitely would contract them again to buy or sell commercial property.

Jason from Semico Components Pty Ltd (Vendor), 3/48 Elizabeth Street, Campsie
Having never sold a property before, I was determined to find the right company to manage the sale of my factory unit. After extensive research and meetings with numerous agents, I met with Luke Smith and immediately felt at ease. Luke was well informed on recent sales in our area and he showed a genuine interest in my needs as a vendor. The sales and marketing package was very competitive and all our open inspections were held on-time with little to no disruption. Communication from Luke and his team was paramount at all times. The weekly sale update throughout the campaign gave me a clear idea on how our property was being received by the market and highlighted the number of potential buyers. Luke and his team left no stone unturned leading up to auction night and I was confident that all potential buyers would be attending the auction. I was not disappointed and the sale broke area records. The entire team at Raine & Horne Commercial South Sydney / Inner West are first class, hands-on and very thorough. I would highly recommend them to anyone thinking of buying or selling any type of property.

Joe & Dalila (Vendors), 55 Addison Road, Marrickville
After 20 years in our property at Marrickville, it was difficult and emotional to put it up for sale. Our decision to go with Luke from Raine & Horne Commercial Inner West / South Sydney proved to be a great choice. They were very professional in their approach, yet showed that element of personal service needed to make us feel comfortable. The outcome of the auction was beyond our expectations, all due to their hard work and commitment. Thank you to all the team at Raine & Horne Commercial.

Shona (Vendor), 2/1-7 Jabez Street, Marrickville
Luke Smith made selling my warehouse easy. Having originally bought the property through Luke Smith, I knew he would be attentive and would make every effort to answer any questions I had about the sale. From the day it was listed, I had a steady stream of interested buyers view the property. The auction itself went smoothly, with Luke acting as an arbitrator for the final stages of bidding. I received the price I wanted for my warehouse, with Luke taking much of the stress out of the process. I would recommend Luke to anyone buying or selling commercial property in the Inner West.

Michael (Vendor), 11 Burrows Road South, St Peters
We asked ourselves many times before signing with Luke's team, what difference can these guys make compared to the bigger agencies? On closer look, Luke's team has achieved better results. If you are an owner looking for results, go with Luke Smith and his team.

Vendors, 701 Princes Highway, Tempe
We recently placed a commercial building on the market through Raine & Horne Commercial Inner West / South Sydney. The preparation before the auction as well as the entire process was managed by Luke Smith, ably assisted by other members of the company. The entire Raine & Horne team managed the process in a very professional, effective and efficient manner. The property was on the market for five weeks and four weekly inspections. At the conclusion of the four weeks the property was sold at auction for about 16% above reserve. Great achievement by a great team! We fully endorse them and would be delighted to recommend the Raine & Horne Commercial team.

Vendors, 552 Parramatta Road, Petersham
When we decided to sell our property, a shop and residence at Petersham, we contacted Raine & Horne Commercial at Marrickville. Luke and the team advised us on advertising and marketing strategies. The result, $271,000 over reserve at the auction, speaks for itself. They were very professional in their dealings with us and at no time did they try to push us into something we were not prepared to do. Thank you and well done to the team.

Eva & Phillip Southcombe (Vendors), Commonwealth Bank Campsie & Camden
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Luke Smith of Raine&Horne Commercial for all his effort in the sale of two of our commercial properties, one being the CBA building at Campsie, the other the CBA building at Camden. Luke’s professionalism and regular feedback assisted us throughout the marketing, auction and sale process. We also appreciated the choice of auction venue and auctioneer. The auctioneer was very professional. We have no hesitation in recommending the services of Luke Smith. His good work has now allowed us to consider our retirement.

Vendor, 308-312 Beamish Street, Campsie
Luke and the team at Raine and Horne did an outstanding job for us selling our property for $1.3m above the reserve. I'm in the property development business and deal with many agents and from all my experience Luke has proven, with his actions and sincerity, to be one of the best agents in the Sydney area who I could not possibly recommend enough. Terrific job!
